Nichols told The Boot
he was excited to find the song and explained how he made it his own.
"I wanted to desperately find something that was, you know, Shenandoah's 'Next to You, Next to Me' - a throwback, Randy Travis, foot-tapping type of thing, you know? Don Williams even a little bit - just something along that line: feels good, doesn't have to be explosive, doesn't have to be making a statement or anything, just has to feel good and [have] a good sentiment.
When I heard 'Never Gets Old,' I was very grateful, because it's something you don't find very often when you specifically ask for something … [but the song has changed from the demo] quite a bit. I think there's more folk-y [elements] on the demo, and I think it's done well, but I think we kind of made it more of a - more me."
